Miku Z4 on Super GT 2009 - SUZUKA

This time I quite missed Super GT race at Suzuka. I hope you'll forgive me. I still try to keep you informed about what happens there. Last time I wrote about Sugo.

During last weekend 22th and 23th of August there was 700km long "Pokka GT SUMMER SPECIAL" at Suzuka circuit. Qualifying round went well for Miku Z4 and they finished 12th. This gave a quite good starting grid position next day in total 20 cars. About half of the race was good for them, but then they had to retire because of the faulty accelerator wire. That's sad. You can find more about that in Studie GLAD blog (translated) and here.

Here is one video coverage of Miku Z4 race. Unfortunately it is in Japanese, but if you watch it many times, you may start to understand what happened there. :)

Also, Super GT in not all about racing. Have a look. This small video was done during pit walk.

It also appears that one Goodsmile Racng team member has been playing around with his phone, since many short "inside" videos have appeared into their Youtube channel. I suspect he hasn't checked them, because they all are 90 degrees turned. You can find more videos on their Nicovideo channel.

That's all for now. Next event will be at Fuji Speedway on 12th and 13th of September.

Michael Jackson special

As we all know we'll never see Michael Jackson on stage ever again, but memory of him lives on, in various forms. One if these is combining Vocaloids with his songs. There are a lot of bad examples of it, but here are some of my favourite picks.

It isn't often when you see Miku with something else than skirt. Here is one of those cases and it suits her just as well.

Performance: Hatsune Miku (Project DIVA)
Song: Michael Jackson - Beat It!

Kaito does it even better if his tempo would be right.

Performance: Kaito (Project DIVA)
Song: Michael Jackson - Thriller

One more pick I chose because I liked the non-usual animation style of Miku. She's bad.

Performance: Hatsune Miku (a bit wierd version tho)
Song: Michael Jackson - Bad

Live performance of Hatsune Miku

I remember that in Hatsune Mix it was a dream of Miku to perform live on stage. That dream bacame true. There she was on stage on Animelu Summer Live 2009 welcomed by staggering number of listeners, reportedly about 25000.

A bit more about it here.

Fast food and Miku

For some unknown reason someone has mixed Miku and Ronald the clown into one person and made a video out of it. I purposely didn't embed it here, because this is just wrong. My sole opinion is that megaburgers and Miku just don't match.

Clean Tears

I start off with a new song from Clean Tears with bizarre name D'zK. Clean Tears is claimed to be one of the oldest trance style composers using Miku's voice. On their website you can find all their works. Some of it can be previewed in Youtube playlist, but there are much more in this and this mylist in NicoVideo. If you liked Youtube playlist, I highly recommend these two for you too.

I haven't found any good MP3 source for Clean Tears, but I'll work on that :).
If all else fails, then there is always NicoSound you can use to rip mp3s one by one out of NicoVideo.

Do we have to be afraid and run as fast as we can, since Robo-Miku is here with her ultra-deadly leek?

Miku herself is not sure whether she is a robot or not:

I personally like the first video, "Boku wa Roboto" (I am a robot) more, mainly because of the really good artwork.

This whole post reminds me of a post Toomas made a while ago, it may have been about vocaloids in estonia (or the lack of), but what touched me was the song The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku

Electric Angel

This is a song that could be best described as: Miku singing a little song about herself. I don't know if the term "electric angel" would be accurate, but it somehow fits Miku rather well. I adore the little clip at 0:53 when Miku peers from the dark cyberspace into the black and white real world, with the user leaving her alone.

This is the Aerial Flow remix that I greatly prefer over the original. But of course not in youtube quality that in my opinion completely ruins the song. The mp3 is here.
